Default Mods for late model Thunderbird?

I know you guys may not be as knowledgeable on this subject as you are with Mustangs, but my father and I are considering buying an 05 Thunderbird together. Has anyone here had any personal experience with these? I also haven't seen ANY aftermarket for these. Anyone got any suggestions, such as power adders, exhaust, perhaps forced induction?

Thanks!

Doubt you'll find much for the 3.9l V8. Just not enough market for that motor.

Yeah, I've noticed that. It's a kind of a bummer, always liked that roadster style. They should have incorporated the 4.6.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

lol. i thought this went great with s197 tech though?

Fine...I'll admit it

this is the most honorable thing you guys will ever see

S197 TEKKKKKK!!!!


and just like that I win.


STILL

You OT guys know anything about the newer T-birds? They're pretty f'n obscure, can't really find anything online so I guess that kind of f**ks my chances for finding anything else. Wish we had the resources to swap in a supercharged 4.6L.
